Leonardo Painting the Mona Lisa by Cesare Maccari – 1863

I love this colorful, lively painting, but there is undoubtedly one favorite feature: the line between Da Vinci’s and Mona Lisa’s eyes. Their unbroken connection is emphasized by the distracting things around them, the musician, poet, and unruly dog. Still, in spite of it all, she keeps on looking at him with that mysterious look of hers, and he is delving into her face with the utmost seriousness, his brush at the ready. What a delightful painting!
